Default Re: Navy?

It appears to have started life as a 1917 dated Navy, and was reworked during the Weimar/early Nazi era into a 4" Navy. Maybe someone with a better knowledge of Navy Lugers can help here, but I thought the Navy property marks were etched or engraved rather than stamped into the metal. The Luger pictured shows heavy stamping of the property mark to the extent that the metal is deformed.
